The University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) has become the latest Strategic Partner to join the Commonwealth Enterprise & Investment Council (CWEIC).
Prof. Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey, Vice-Chancellor of UPSA, will represent the University on the CWEIC Global Advisory Council, a press statement signed by the Registrar of UPSA, Dr Koryoe Anim-Wright said.
CWEIC is a commercial, not-for-profit membership organisation with an official mandate from the Commonwealth Heads of Government to facilitate trade and investment throughout the 56 Commonwealth member nations.
CWEIC boasts a vast network of more than 130 Strategic Partners, including governments, businesses, multilateral institutions and academia.
CWEIC has built a reputation as a trusted intermediary, providing invaluable connections between business and government, as well as between Strategic Partners looking to collaborate with one another.
Following a visit to Ghana by CWEIC Deputy Chair, Lord Swire, UPSA decided to join the CWEIC network to foster new strategic alliances and international collaboration.
“UPSA is very pleased to be a member of CWEIC,” Prof. Amartey says.
“As a progressive university that wants its graduates to become the most targeted by top employers and its faculty, the leading resource for the transfer of knowledge to industry, this strategic partnership will afford us the opportunity to forge symbiotic relationships that will create opportunities for our students and faculty while enriching our offerings.”
“CWEIC is delighted to welcome the University of Professional Studies as the latest Strategic Partner,” Lord Swire says.
“We are excited to assist UPSA in achieving its objectives and establishing fresh partnerships. The remarkable expansion of the University serves as evidence of Professor Amartey’s dedication to and belief in the significance of delivering specialised education for the development of professional services.”
The partnership is expected to provide UPSA with enhanced opportunities for global partnerships and collaboration for research, talent development and capacity building for faculty, and ultimately, add immense value to teaching and learning.
